The Lady Chargers continued to improve on their season by competing in the West Michigan Academy of Environmental Science (WMAES) Basketball Tournament. The ladies took on the host WMAES Eagles in the first round and jumped out to an early lead and never looked back while charging to a 31-10 victory. It was CTA’s relentless pressure that enabled the team to force 36 turnovers in the game. Faith Watson led the Lady Chargers with eight points, freshman Hannah Hofstra threw in an additional six points. All of this was supported by senior point guard Holly Fahling who had five points, four rebounds and four assists.

In the Championship games, CTA faced the Grand Rapids Thunder for the the Tournament title.

The Lady Chargers played an aggressive player-to-player defense. Stifling pressure frustrated the Thunder team forcing 32 turnovers which created numerous fast break opportunities for the Lady Chargers’ 37-13. Holly Fahling stepped it up and scored 14 points with five steals and four rebounds. Faith Watson threw in an additional 11 points with Junior Autumn Watson cleaning up the boards with 8 rebounds. All players were able to get into both games and first year players Kaela Bucholtz, Elizabeth Jahns and Molly Wortz also logged points in the tournament. “It is great when when can play good team defense and get all 14 girls significant court time,” stated coach Steven Washington. “All of our players had the opportunity to contribute to a good team win.” With the wins, the Lady Chargers are 5-7 for the year and play this Friday, February 17th at Grace Bible College hosting the Wellspring Academy Wolves.

The Second Annual CTA Spelling Bee 2017

CTA Spelling Bee: Brenna Jibson, Middle School English Teacher Jenny Bangma and Conner Warner.

CTA Spelling Bee: Brenna Jibson, Middle School English Teacher Jenny Bangma and Conner Warner.

In January, 23 students in grades fourth through eighth competed in the second annual CTA School Spelling Bee!

For several weeks prior to the Bee, participants practiced, practiced, and practiced lists of spelling words in preparation for the School Bee. These same participants also attended the weekly CTA Chargers Spelling Club hosted by sixth grade teacher, Mrs. Jenny Bangma; it was here that participants gained strategies for spelling words, remembering letter patterns, and etiquette for the actual Bee. Lots of hard work was put in by our Charger Spellers over the last few months in preparation for this event!

The CTA School Spelling Bee went nine rounds, resulting in a Champion and a Runner-up. The Bee Champion is fifth grade student, Conner Warner; the Runner-up is sixthgrade student, Brenna Jibson. The winners will head to the Regional Spelling Bee competition in Grand Rapids, Michigan on Thursday, Feb. 16. Our entire school community is so proud and excited for our Chargers!

Bursting Drama Bubbles

Girl Talk: Seventh grade student, Alyssa Shelagowski, bursts a “drama bubble”.

Girl Talk: Seventh grade student, Alyssa Shelagowski, bursts a “drama bubble”.

Girl Talk is a little more than half way through its third year as an after school club. The group meets 2-3 times per month throughout the school year. They’ve explored topics such as purpose, getting involved in the community, facing depression, exploring personal values, and dismissing drama – just to name a few.

When the girls meet, they do different activities, games, or just as the name implies – talk.

During the dismissing drama meeting this year, things got messy but oh so fun! The girls blew up balloons filling them with confetti and glitter, drew or wrote representations of their drama on the outside and then took turns bursting their drama bubbles. It proved to be a very therapeutic session!

The girls are still planning service projects for the spring.

A few ladies will be involved on February 11 with Solon Township’s Velzey Park Spaghetti Dinner fundraiser and they are hoping to get involved with the new library and other community events.

New Venue Enhances Experience for CTA Choirs

Middle School and High School students combined for “Carol of the Bells” during the winter concert.

Middle School and High School students combined for “Carol of the Bells” during the winter concert.

On Monday, Dec. 12, the middle and high school choirs at CTA put on a holiday concert. This was a year of many firsts for the choirs. This was the first time that the choirs performed a holiday concert. Due to scheduling, last year’s choirs were not able to do a holiday concert. Many students were excited about being able to perform the well-known songs. The other “first” for this concert was the opportunity to perform at Cedar Springs High School. The professionalism and hard work of the singers was complemented by a beautiful venue. The final “first” happened at the very end of the concert when all 62 singers (middle and high school) performed the song “Carol of the Bells” together. For many in the choir and the audience, Carol of the Bells was the favorite moment of the concert. Many audience members praised the combined effort and loved the power that the combined group was able to achieve. The middle school singers got to experience the excitement of singing with the high school choir and the older students got the opportunity to be leaders for the students coming up. CTA’s first holiday choir concert was a great success!
